About This Coffee
We are featuring Rubi as our first seasonal green label for summer 2022. A pretty special micro lot of Red bourbon from El Vergel Estate farm located in Fresno, Tolima. The beautiful department that extends over the Colombian mountains, including the inactive Ruiz volcano.
Under the leadership of Elias and Shady Bayter, this farm has been producing a variety of single origin coffees and experimenting with new and innovative processing techniques for coffee roasters around the world.
This anaerobic natural process micro lot is one of the standout coffees produced on the farm. It was planted in 2016 with a quantity of 5,500 plants and implemented by the hand of Martha Rubi, who managed to put together a team of women specialized in picking cherries.
Since the women’s project began in 2018 with 8 women (and currently 15), the quality continues to improve thanks to the group’s meticulous harvesting, which provides 95% of ripe cherries in each harvest.
